Tissue Flower Love


Wow--What a surprise--we're having an almost blizzard here--yesterday it was 73--that's Texas for you--
I have to apologize to all you gals who made these tissue paper flowers a few weeks ago, because in all my notes I put on my new bulletin board right next to my computer I failed to make a note of the blog I first saw these on. I found this tissue in on of my gift bags from my birthday, it has a pink design on one side and white on the other. I cut 4 sizes of wavy circles by hand(the old fashioned way), 3 of each size except the smallest and there are 4 of them, I layered every other layer printed side, white side. Mash and roll in a ball in your hand, fluff out, poke a hole in the center and attach whatever kind of embellie you like, keep fluffing until you are happy with the results. You can ink the edges if you like, mine are inked with a light pink so you can't really tell. I attached mine to my card with glue dots.
Wah-lah--tissue paper flower!!
